I watched Kung Fu Dunk on Valentine's Day in GSC, Pavillion KL. What I can say is that it's a very unoriginal flick. Ya, I know Jay Chou's fan will start blasting me. I like his songs but not this movie.
The first unoriginality is combining kung fu with sport. Stephen Chou had done that in Shaolin Football, changing the type of sport to basketball and using kung fu instead of Shaolin doesn't make it a new idea.
The second unoriginality is the main characters in the movie, which strike a close resemblance to one of my favourite manga/anime, Slam Dunk. The lead character played by Jay Chou is a genius type basketball player with great endurance and jumping power. Funny that the lead character in Slam Dunk, Sakuragi Hanamichi also have the same profile. There's even one scene where Jay hit the dunk board when doing his first slam dunk, which can be found in Slam Dunk too where Sakuragi first try to do slam dunk but failed and hitting the dunk board.
Then enter the team captain played by Bo-lin Chan. He don't resemble Takenori Akagi in personal character (Akagi is tall,dark and muscular. Not an alcoholic) but Akagi got a younger sister, Takenori Haruko whom is the basketball team manager. Bo-lin Chan also have a younger sister played by Charlene Choi of Twins and she happened to be the team manager too and have a crush on the chracter played Baron Chan, whom turn out to be so much like Rukawa Kaede. Rukawa is a great basketball player with great skill. He is adored by many girls which is the same as Baron Chan's chracter . Haruko (the team captain's younger sister) also has a crush over Rukawa.
The producer might as well put in the opening credential there "Based on characters from the Japanese manga Slam Dunk".
The third unoriginality, well not everyone might agreed with me but the scene that Jay Chou and Eric Tsang 's characters are eating French cuisine in the back alley reminds me of Rattatoile. Maybe it's just me.
Overall, this is a movie with some great stunt coordination and special effect. If you want to watch a movie with a good story this is not a movie you will want to watch.
